adidas signature athlete Damian Lillard has come together with iconic Japanese streetwear brand BAPE to release three special collaborative colorways of the Adidas Dame 4.
Born from a mutual desire to reimagine basketball footwear and co-create with those who inspire us from sport, fashion and entertainment, adidas and BAPE teamed up to fuse streetwear and on-court style through the lens of one of the game’s most elite creative point guards.
The BAPE x adidas Dame 4 Collection offers a glimpse into Damian’s personal style and affinity for BAPE’s signature design aesthetics. A longtime fan, Damian’s visit to BAPE’s Tokyo Flagship during his 2015 adidas Asia Tour sparked the idea of collaborating with the brand. “I became even more inspired by the brand when I visited BAPE’s store in Japan,” said Damian. “From that point, I knew I wanted the first major collaboration for my signature line to be with BAPE.”
Complementing the Dame 4’s design, the collaborative model takes inspiration from BAPE’s coveted iconic Shark design and its distinctive decorative elements. Offered in green, black and red, each colorway features BAPE CAMO on the upper with BAPE’s Shark tooth design displayed along the shoe’s full-length BOUNCE midsole. WGM, symbolizing World Gone Mad, and the classic tiger ‘a’ icon are featured on the ankle piece. YKWYTII, Damian’s ‘You Know What Time It Is’ moniker is printed on the heel tape while adidas, BAPE and Damian’s signature marks are highlighted throughout.
All three colorways from the BAPE x adidas Dame 4 Collection will be available on February 16th for $150 during adidas’ 747 Warehouse in Los Angeles. Additionally, the Black Camo and Green Camo colorways also will be releasing on February 17th at adidas.com and BAPE.
